MPfilm Wade or Vaderdave501st?

I am tired of making my own belts, they suck, I am a rebel not a leathersmith.

I want to know which one you guys feel is the best made and most authentic.

Thanks guys

I do not know much about Vaderdave TBH... MP does make a good holster... just not a fan of the buckles, but thats just me.

For that kind of money though... you can buy all the tools, and make it yourself... for half the price. Really the only tough part is the hardware.

I am sure many people like thier buckles I find them to be made kind of cheap. For that price the hardware should be made out of steel and be welded. For the logest time I believe they used JB weld to hold things together.

I am sure someone can correct me if I am wrong about that.

Here's a pic of one of his rigs:



I'm fairly certain that the $600 includes the pants belt as well.
